Connect with the Breath Begin in a comfortable seated position, placing your hands gently on the knees. Take a gentle breath in and elongate the spine, raising the crown of the head upward. Relax down through the shoulders and arms. Now bring the awareness to the natural breath. Without changing the way you are breathing, simply become aware of each inhalation and exhalation. Continue to follow the natural breath with full awareness counting the breath backwards from 18-1. Inhaling 18, exhaling 18, inhaling 17 exahling 17 and so on down to the number 1.
